MARYLAND: The Maryland/Israel Development Center (MIDC) will showcase some of its best work at an event next week, In Our Own Backyard. Ten to 15 of Maryland’s 20 Israeli-owned companies will be present to talk about their technologies. A poster session, an Israeli wine tasting and a keynote address by technology entrepreneur, investor and author Roni Einav will complete the evening.
Barry Bogage, MIDC executive director, said this is the second year the MIDC is hosting such an event.
“We have been hosting delegations of Israeli entrepreneurs every year for the past 10 years,” he said, referencing the organization’s MarketReach American program. “We thought we should give the Israeli companies that are already here exposure to the Maryland business community.”
